from & for the hip.

don’t you just hate it?!

when singers learn from someone else’s recording, and get it wrong.  when they try to correct the lyricist’s grammar as in “I’ve Got It Bad,” and “I’ve Got Rhythm.”  when they don’t (can’t?) sing it once thru properly.  when even the song titles become obscured as in “On Green Dolphin St.”  there’s no “our” in the title of “Love Is Here to Stay.”  i can easily understand why “Oh, Lady Be Good” became just “Lady Be Good.”  we have Ella to thank for that.  there are too many to list here; someone on the Jazz Journalists Association site has already done it for us
